|Description: ||eBay has democratized and diversified Judaica collecting by expanding the collecting community and broadening the parameters of what “counts” as Judaica, a development sure to have an indelible
effect upon the individuals and institutions that collect and exhibit Judaica. The exhibition “Culture as Commodity: Internet Auctions and Judaica Collecting,” at the Judaica Museum of the Hebrew Home for the Aged at Riverdale in 2001-2002, explored a host of questions arising from this phenomenon. Using the online collecting process exemplified by Culture as Commodity, students will create a virtual exhibition of Jewish objects in order to explore issues revolving around Judaica
collecting, popular taste, the market value of objects, and online communities.|
